Excerpt from Article

Francesca Pataro and Zeke Miller, both Aiken High School English teachers, called the writing program the best professional development opportunity they've experienced.

"This has given me so many great ideas to be more inclusive and authentic in the teaching of writing," said Pataro. "I want to connect the kids to a larger world - not only to their life experiences but experiences they can share globally."
